Locker Room for the Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals: State-of-the-art training facility features Hollman Athletic Lockers
The Washington Nationals and Houston Astros have officially opened The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches! Located in West Palm Beach, FL, the brand new, state-of-the-art training facility includes multiple fields, a recreational park and an array of amenities for guests. The Astros’ fields occupy the north side of the complex, while Washington’s fields can be found to the south.
Will Kubzanksy, contributor for Federal Baseball wrote, “The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches is a nice stadium. […] [T]here’s not a bad seat in the house, a good-looking scoreboard, and nice amenities, including a really, really big Curly W — so if you have the chance, definitely go to a game.
Three of the 12 practice fields were built with outfield dimensions matching Minute Maid Park in Houston, and Nationals Park in Washington to help Astros and Nationals players get re-acquainted with their regular-season ballparks.
According to BallparkDigest.com, “One thing this design maintains from the previous Osceola County Stadium design: The Astros are keeping the player parade to and from the clubhouse. Astros players tend to be very accessible to fans during spring training, and one reason (was) the pathway between the left-field clubhouse and the Osceola County Stadium playing field.”
The principal architect of the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, Mo Stein, commented, “One of the great joys in baseball is you can be so much closer to the action than in any other sport, and that’s what we’ve emphasized with our new venue.”
“Sometimes the best spring sightings can be found on the practice fields—the staff ace working on his pick-off move, the everyday infielders refining their double-play throws.”
“Fans interested in the daily workouts will have easy access and a chance to get autographs,” says Stein. “Fans who want to focus on the game experience will be very comfortable, too.”
